Amazon's Kindle Lighted Leather Cover

Our new design seamlessly incorporates a reading light into the cover, so you can carry your Kindle wherever you go and always have a reading light with you. Simply pull the light out to illuminate Kindle when you need it, and slide it away to be invisible when you don't. And since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.

The contoured, pebble-grain leather (available in 7 different colors) keeps your Kindle safe and secure, while the soft charcoal microfiber interior protects the screen from scratches. The cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.


The built-in, retractable LED light pulls out to illuminate Kindle, and slides away when not in use.


Never Be Without a Light

Our all-new Kindle cover features an integrated, retractable LED reading light that lets you read comfortably anytime, anywhere. The high-quality LED light illuminates Kindle's paper-like display, adding brightness without adding glare.

A permanent part of the cover, the reading light is located in the top right-hand corner of the back cover. When needed, simply pull the light out and it automatically illuminates, eliminating the need for a separate power switch. To turn the light off, slide it back in to the corner of the cover.

Since the light is powered by Kindle's battery, no batteries are needed.

 

How It Works

In addition to securing Kindle in place, our new hinge system conducts electricity from Kindle's battery to the reading light - when Kindle is attached to the hinge, an electrical connection is formed that powers the light.

The cover's hinge points are gold-plated, to ensure a reliable electrical connection. Gold is used because of its ability to make good electrical contact even with low force, and for its corrosion resistance.


Secure Your Kindle in Four Easy Steps


Read Comfortably with One Hand


Reading with the cover on, you can easily access Kindle's navigation features and power switch, while the rounded edges offer a perfect fit in your hands. The cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand. And the retractable reading light is easily accessible with the cover open or folded back.


On the Go

This compact cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go. The sleek leather ensures the ultimate fit and protection, without adding bulk or weight. Our hinge system secures Kindle in place, and an elastic strap keeps the cover firmly closed for maximum screen protection. Simply attach Kindle to the hinge, apply the strap, and rest assured it will stay securely in place even when you're on the go.

You'll never be without a reading light, and since the light draws its power from Kindle, no batteries are needed.



Amazon’s official Kindle lighted cover features contoured, pebble-grain, cowhide leather available in 7 different colors.

 

 

Read Kindle easily in the dark with Amazon's revolutionary, all-new lighted leather cover.



The hinge points are gold-plated to ensure a reliable electrical connection. No batteries required.


Read easily with one hand, with or without the light on.


Protect your Kindle on the go, and never be without a reading light

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Heavy and Poor Design September 19, 2010
By Sami
Amazon Verified Purchase
I just ordered both the Kindle 3 (3G + WiFi) and this cover. The weight of the Kindle is about half a pound which I love. The weight of the cover is about a pound. Put them together and you get 1.5 pounds which defeats the purpose of having a light Kindle. This is the same weight at the iPad.

The light does not work well. It can not seem to stay on. The lint from the inside of the cover sticks to the screen of the Kindle.

I strongly do not recommend waisting good US$59.00 on this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not GREAT September 3, 2010
By Sean P.
Amazon Verified Purchase
The way I look at this, NOTHING is going to be perfect for any device we buy.

I love the convenience of the built in light, and I think the cover does a great job protecting the Kindle.

Yes, it adds a LOT of weight to what is supposed to be a lighter device. And at first, that bothered me. However, I realized I was not really reading that much at night, so I removed it and used a softer cover I had for every day use. BINGO, we have a winner.

If you read in bed, I'd suggest adding this to the Kindle at night...it's very easy to remove and will not damage the Kindle. This way, during the day (I do work and travel a lot so only read in the evenings), you can have this really lightweight and attractive device and in the evenings, the light you want.

I did notice of course that there seems to be unevenness of the lighting.

NO, REALLY? LOL...I mean, take out any light that you've purchased that clips on and tell me you get PERFECT even lighting!! IF you say you do, I'd like to know the brand, because I have TWO lights, and both do a good job, just not perfect and it's uneven.

I did read a review where someone returned the cover and got a new one and felt it was better, so maybe that's an option, but to be honest, I live in REALITY and understand nothing is going to be 100% perfect. It does the job and does it very well.

I would give it 5 stars if not for the weight, but overall, I'm happy with it. It's an innovative product that's convenient and you have to pay for that convenience.

2.0 out of 5 stars Light isn't that great November 14, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase
The Kindle lighted cover is a nice thing to keep your Kindle always with you. The included light isn't that great, the light position isn't optimal and as it is build on a plastic bracket so you can't bend the light-holder.
I will look forward for a better lighted cover.

Another disappointing thing about this cover is the chemical odour, even after several weeks, the smell remains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle 3 Lighted Cover August 28, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase
This is like a hardcover book. It holds the Kindle firmly in its place; has a neat elastic cord to put around the cover so the cover is NOT flopping open & scratching the screen. The cover can bend all the way back & be held with the elastic cord. The light on it is great. It covers the entire screen & makes it easy to read in the dark. The light comes out w/ a bit difficulty, but that is good because you do no want it using your battery when you are not reading. You don't need to worry about it breaking off when not in use. I have the chocolate brown and it is beautiful. There is no leather odor. I LOVE it.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Have A Winner September 2, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase
I received my Kindle 3 last week a day before the actual release date but I took a wait & see attitude before ordering a case for it. I went with the chocolate brown case and I'm happy to say that it's awesome! As others have stated, the case is extremely well made & solid. It just feels like a quality product. The light functions quite well and is bright enough to light the page without being over powering. While it is one of the more expensive cases available, the option of having a built in light and keeping a slim profile for me secured the deal. Amazon you have a winner here!

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle leather case December 27, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase
We found the cases to be heavier than the Kindle so we returned them. The weight defeated the ease of holding the Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - worth every cent! September 13, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying this cover is brilliant. Seriously! I've always found it hard buying some products online, as pictures can only show you so much and you end up often relying on the words (or sales pitch) given. It becomes even more frustrating when discover your purchase isn't completely as described. Let me say this is not Amazon. From my persepctive and in respect to this cover Amazon delivered exactly as promised and described. The leather is even real leather and not some leather look-a-like! From the moment I received this cover I was impressed, the frustration free packaging is frustration free, to the care taken to pack a cover! I'm sure Amazon could have packed it differently, but instead they took the care to pack it in a smaller but similar box to the Kindle.

How does it work?
-----------------

Attaching my Kindle was easy. There are some simple easy to follow instructions included (not like the Apple iPhone - I like the iPhone, but instructions are always handy for when you don't read them and then need too to know what to do). The Kindle attaches nicely to two metal clips and is held firmly in position. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the cover and the protection it affords my Kindle. On the inside of the cover is a felted material, which in my opinion protects the Kindle screen and isn't as harsh as if Amazon had adopted for a leather finish on the inside.

In your hands?
--------------

Light, positive and comfortable. Although the cover weighs something (don't know what) it's still light and sits nicely in one or two hands. With the cover attached it still feels like you are just reading a book.
